WOMAN IN RED by JALpix WOMAN IN RED by JALpix
There was something about the original shot that reminded me of a John Singer Sargent painting, so that's the style I've aimed for. Thanks again go to Cathleen Tarawhiti for posting the excellent original stock photo[link]!:)

This is stunning. I love how surreal the flowing edges of her gown are. The whole thing is hazy and dreamlike.

Wonderful!
It reminds me a bit of an Otto Dix painting: [link]
But the woman on your painting is way more beautiful than the one of the Otto Dix painting :D

WOW, this will be one of my favourite pics you've made!!! The light and the blur around her hair and dress are amazing, it looks evanescent! Her face is also very pretty and expressive... It reminds me a bit one of the characters of the movie "Mulholland Drive" by David Lynch (the brunette): [link]
Which is very meaningful as this character is amnesic, and when she looks like that, it's when she's about to remember something, or when she feels lost. So your picture has a deepest meaning to me, especially as you call it "woman in red", as if she has no name.

Thanks so much TMG for your wonderful and thoughtful comment, I really appreciate the fact you have taken so much time to write down just exactly what the pic means to you! Although I haven't seen Mullholland drive I was really surprised at how similar the character you mention and the subject in my painting, quite astonishing! Thank you once again!!:)

You're very welcome! ^^ It's true that I don't have time to let long comments on pics anymore, but I wanted to explain what I feel in front of this picture.
Mulholland Drive is an excellent movie by David Lynch, but as it's a movie by David Lynch, it's extremely cryptic. x) It's very hard to understand his movies (apart some exceptions like "Elephant Man" which is quite classic), so some people don't like him at all. Still I would recommand "Mulholland Drive", which is a very inspiring movie. One of the most known and most beautiful scenes of the movie: [link]

I must admit I have only seen a couple of his films, and have a soft spot for DUNE, initially as Brian Eno composed the soundtrack and,as it turned out, I thought it was an excellent adaptation of the Frank Herbert book.
Thanks for the link Tommy, I will follow it up!!:):)

O____O Du... DUNE?!!! Uh... I consider it as his only shitty movie... ^^" Well, I didn't like the books at all, so... I even consider the movie like being slightly better than the books, finally. On the other hand, I don't like fantasy so much, apart from Tolkien, and when I say Tolkien... It's mostly thanks to the movies. ^^" The only book of Tolkien that I really liked to read even before the movie was "The Hobbit". Probably because at the time he was writing for kids. =D And now I should run before Tolkien's and Herbert's fans find me...

Hauntingly beautiful.
The painterly red is powerful yet not overpowerful. Her face makes the mark.
